01 Apr Alternative Cake Toppers for Happy Tiers
The special touch that makes the cake
Your wedding cake. Layer after tasty layer of moist cake, rich buttercream frosting, and smooth fondant: In the words of everyone’s kitchen fairy godmother, Ina Garten, “How bad can that be?” The only thing that could make it better? A totally personal cake topper that—in the spirit of all things old, new, borrowed, and blue—is your something you, a finishing flourish that exemplifies the love you and your sweetheart share and lets your personalities shine through. Your baker will probably ask at your cake tasting (yum!) if you have a special topper in mind, so read on to get inspired by these alternative cake toppers before digging in to all those scrumptious samples.
A monogram or a Mr. & Mrs. nameplate will make a splash—it’ll be one of the first times you see your new last name! You can keep it simple, show off your new initial or proudly display your new moniker.
Ask your baker and florist to collaborate to add petal-perfect charm to your cake. Pluck them off before taking a bite, or go with edible flowers like hibiscus, lavender, or pansies.
Give your pooch a place of honor by having him sit, stay (good boy!) on your top tier. Our cute figurine comes in six dog breeds, or you can ask your baker to make a fondant sculpture of your pets. Aww!
